The Anchor Inn - a longtime landmark in this tiny town along the Toms River and Barnegat Bay - received 47 votes, or 30 percent of the 152 votes cast.
The Forked River house on South Main Street in Forked River came in second with 35 votes, or 23 percent of the votes cast.
Martell's Waters Edge on Bayview Avenue in Bayville was third, with 29 votes or 19 percent.
